Why You Should Consider a Summer Wedding

Posted on:

It’s been a beautiful summer of love so far, we’ve had everything that we could ever hope for, lots of sunshine and plenty of dry weather. It’s safe to say that summer is one of the most popular seasons to get married. The chance of sunny weather, longer days and a few bank holiday weekends, means a great balance for all. If you needed any more convincing, this blog explores some of the best reasons for having a summer wedding and some of the trends you might consider. We’ll also feature some of David’s summer weddings and the beautiful wedding flowers he made.

The first reason for a summer wedding is the opportunity to enjoy the sunshine, although summer weddings in Northern Ireland can sometimes have a little shower here and there. So it’s not always a sure bet that the weather will be lovely, however, one thing you can count on is the longer evenings. Come rain or shine you know you will have plenty of daylight hours to enjoy with your guests. It’s important to prepare for all weather (especially when you live in Northern Ireland) so make sure and include umbrellas, give them to someone nearby so they can be easily reached.

Summer weddings are beautiful in wedding photos but don’t panic if the weather doesn’t go according to plan, after all a wedding photographer will know exactly what to do! They’ll use the setting and lighting to create stunning photos, no matter what.

If you decide on a summer wedding, you’ll find that your venue options may be a little wider. Say hello to venues with gardens, outdoor spaces, marquees and even a simple field can all be transformd into an amazing wedding space that is perfect for the happy couple. With outdoor spaces, you have even more room for beautiful accessories, flowers and unique elements. Your imagination can run free. Whether it’s an elegant garden lawn style event or a bohemian forest adventure, summer weddings unlock a world of possibility.

With that world of possibility comes your flowers, summer is the high season of beautiful blooms, which means that there is a huge array of flowers to choose from. Any colour palette can be matched and any taste meet. There is no limit, think flowing archways, trailing vines and wild buds. Or roses and peonies galore. Modern trends see flowers being the centre point to your wedding, with striking accents of white, rose gold and coppers, and in summer wedding flowers simply glow.

David where do I even begin? Words cannot express how blown away I was by the flowers and what they added to the day. Nearly every guest commented on how beautiful they were
